Dear 



Thank you for your thoughtful letter of August 6, 1959. 
I certainly enjoyed reading your generous comments concerning my 
book. ^Ma sters of Deceit. " and I appreciate your action in obtaining 
a copy for the use of others. 

It is encouraging to know of your interest in combating 
the menace of communism, and I sincerely hope that your endeavors 
in this field meet with every success. I am enclosing some material 
on the subject of communism which I thought you might like to have. 



Sincerely yours,

Dear Mr. Hoover, 

I have just finished reading "Masters of Deceit, n 
Thank you for writing such a book. I never before realized the 
threat of communism was so great in this country. As a jmrother 
of three children, I am determined to do everything in my power 
to prevent their children from growing up in a communistic U. S. A. 

I got your book from the library, but I am buying 
a copy to lend to our friends and so our children can read it when 
they are older. Thank you again! 

Yours truly,

My dear Mr. Hoover, 

An article in this morning 1 s paper stated that you are 
here in California. After having read it, it occurred to me to write 
you this note. 

Iri these troubled times with so many luke-warm 
Americans in Government I feel that I must express to you, in my 
own little way, my great admiration and respect for you, a real 
American. You are an inspiration to the people of America who are 
being sadly disillusioned. 

I am reading your book "Masters of Deceit", which I 
find to be most revealing, informative and extremely alarming. I 
wish every American would read it. 

And to another real American, the late, great Senator 
Joseph McCarthy, my undying thanks for all he has done for my 
country. 

I do hope that the results of your check-up were 
satisfactory. May God grant you many more years of good health 
and success. 



Gratefully and sincerely,

There is attached the Spanish edition 
of "Masters of Deceit. " This edition is put out by the 
publishing house of "Editorial Letras, S. A. " in 
Mexico City. 

As mentioned telephonically to you August 13, 
it might be a good idea to forward a copy of this edition to 
His Eminence Cardinal Cushing, in Boston. Cardinal Cushing 
and the Director have spoken at great length about the desirability 
of the Spanish edition being placed in Latin American countries. 
The Cardinal is most anxious to get behind a drive which would 
promote this purpose. 

If you and the Director have no objections, instructions 
will be issued to the Legal Attache, Mexico City, to obtain two 
additional copies of this book. These will then be forwarded to 
His Eminence, with an appropriate* letter from the Director advising 
that the Spanish edition is now available through the above-mentioned 
publishing house in Mexico City. 



Respectfully, 
C. D. DeLoach

Dear Mr. Hoover - 

I have admired you and the wonderful service 
you have given our country, for many years - so I think it 
is high time I were telling you so. 

Your hook "Masters of Deceit" should be read 
by every one in this country. But not every one can afford 
to buy it t It should be on every news stand in the country 
for 35 or 50 cents - and it should be advertised, and talked 
about on T. V. and radio.

For your information, I did not mention the case 
of Alger Hiss and others of similar notoriety because Ms book 
was intended as a primer on communism. It was my plan to 
discuss and to disclose the techniques and tactics of the communist 
conspiracy rather than review cases which had received a great 
deal of attention in the past.

Dear Mr. Hoover:* 

I recently read your book "Masters of Deceit" and not only 
for the things it reveals but for the manner in which it 
was -written, I found it most enjoyable and gained a great 
deal of knowledge of the Communistic movement in this country. 

But what puzzles me, so far as your book is concerned, is that 
no mention is made of the Alger Hiss case. In my opinion this 
t?ase brought to the attention of more American Citizens the real 
danger of G§mmunists in this country than anything else. Perhaps 
there was some reason why it was given no attention, in this book* 

Let me compliment you for an extremely well documented book, and 
express to you my thanks for the wonderful job you have done in 
exposing Communists in this country. 

Yours very truly

Dear Mr. Hoover; ^ 

O 

Congratulations on your fine book, ^MASTERS OF DECEIT" 

I have just finished. It was very iritereiHng^anT*qurte in 
I am wondering why I have not 1 seen it on the Best Seller Lifrfcr 

Before I read your book I thought that the Communist Party, 
USA, was a group of a few hundred Russians trying to get into our 
government by force and trickery, but were not very successful. 
Now I see them as a sly, cunning, group of almost a hundred thousand 
Americans, getting more members by the day, trying to make America 
a communist country. 

Congratulations on exposing this dangerous group.

Dear 



The very thoughtful letter postmarked August 29, 1959, 
from Mrs. Howe and you, has been received. I deeply appreciate 
your very generous comments concerning my book "Masters of 
Deceit" and my administration of the FBI. 

The knowledge that you are aware of the danger 
of this terrible menace, atheistic communism, is gratifying to me. 
I strongly believe that an informed and alert citizenry is our Nation's 
greatest bulwark against further inroads of this evil. I am enclosing 
some material that I thought you might enjoy reading. 

Sincerely yours,

Mr. J. Edgar Hoover, 
Director of F. B. I. 
Washington, D. C. 

Dear Mr, Hoover: 

As Americans, long deeply concerned about the 
dreadful menace of Communism in the world, but most especially, 
anxiously disturbed because of its prevalence within our own 
society — our churches, women* s clubs, schools, and 
government, we wish to acknowledge deep gratitude to you, and 
to the loyal Americans who work under you, for your constant 
vigilence, dedication, and devoted service to your country. We 
thank you, also, for the clekr and unmistakable tocsin which 
you have sounded in your book, "Masters of Deceit. " 

God bless, guide, and protect you, Mr. Hoover, 
as well as your splendid FBI, as you courageously and nobly 
seek to eradicate this most sinister and satanic evil from our 
country! The world looks to the United States to overcome 
it, yet we seem but a weak and tottering reed* Unless we are 
able to cleanse ourselves first of the evil, we can in no wise 
cleanse the world. 

With deep respect,

The Honorable J* Edgar Hoover 
Federal Bureau of Investigation 
Washington, D.C. 

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

I have just finished reading "Masters of Deceit", which was found 
extremely interesting and informative* In my opinion, this book 
should be "must" reading in every high school in these United States. 
Let me congratulate you upon a masterful piece of work. 

But may I make one inquiry? The cover of the book carries the 
sub-title of "The Story of Communism and How to Fight It." Although 
you spell out graphically what communism is all about, how the 
individual can recognize its fronts and propaganda, and what he can 
do to fight at* did you not avoid any mention of one of, if not the 
most, effective ways of fighting this evil, namely, the election of 
the proper type of public official? 

Is it not generally conceded that vice and corruption cannot thrive 
in a city or any other political sub-division without the collusion -^ 
or indifference of public officials? Is not the fight against ^J&& 
communism a precisely similar situation in which the individual is 
practically helpless in the "fight" if the elected officials are 
indifferent to the menace, although perhaps not actually in collusio. 

In whose administration was Soviet Russia recognized, which opened 
the floodgates^ Earl Browder was pardonedj Alger Hiss wa«SscSSftflfe-i98s 
ential at meetings with his boss, Staling Martin Dies wasjiounded from 
public lif ej and the espionage calls established in the maz^govern-^ 
ment agencies listed on Page 295 in your book? Who said the charges 
of being a communist brought against Hiss were merely a "red herri: 
One could go on indefinitely asking similar questions relative to^ 
officially unopposed rise of communism in our country. It is f utile^ 
to lock the barn door after the horse is stolen, but it certainly jq& 
not futile to place the responsibility for the unlocking of the d&?r 
in the first place and to authoritatively inform those most vitally 
involved how they can prevent the door from being unlocked again. 

So would not your book have been infinitely more powerful if you had 
placed the responsibility where 1% belongs in the public sphere,

SUBJECT : The Congressional Record 

Pages 16486-16437, Senator Thurmond, (D) South Carolina, spoke 
concerning forced integration. Mr. Thurmond pointed out that "there is little or 
no sentiment in the South for forced mixing of the races except by the few 
Communists we have, militant KAACP members, and race agitators. I have 
also told the Senate that at the present time there is ample evidence to show that 
race agitation is the No. 1 goal of the Communist Party in the United States today. 
This fact has been mentioned by FBI Director J, Edgar Hoover in his book, 
' 'Maste rs of Deceit. ' In fact, he devotes an entire chapter to the subject of 
Communist exploitation of minority groups. " Mr. Thurmond included with his .. 
remarks an article published in the Charleston (South Carolina) News and Courier 
on September 2, 1950, entitled "Negroes Don't Want Forced Integration. " |

The Bureau is in receipt of a letter dated 9-3-59 from 
the above-captioned individual. He indicates that he has just finished reading 
"Masters of Deceit ! J^which he has found extremely interesting and informative. 

I He acids That he would like to make one inquiry, namely whether the election 
of the proper type of public officials would be an effective way in fighting 
communism. This question, however, is tied in with a belief that communism 
in this country has been abetted by top elected officials in the Nation. For 
example, he mentions in whose administration was Soviet Russia recognized, 
Earl Browder pardoned, and Alger Hiss so influential. He makes 
mention of the "red herring" (probably a reference to President Truman). 
The inference of his letter is that communism in the United States has been 
aided by the Democratic administrations of the past.

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

Recently I purchased a copy of your book, Masters of 
Deceit, from the Book-of -the -Month Club. I found it fas- 
cinating, to say the least. Of course I was aware of the 
communist menance, but not until I had the facts placed right 
in front of my eyes did I become aware of the tremendous 
personal threat it now poses to myself as well as^the 
American way of life. 

Being a Christian, I suddenly found myself thinking 
that most Christian Americans do not realize how determined 
and successful (in other countries, at least) the Beds 
really are. My aspirations are to become a religious' -~, 
journalist (I am a 20-year-old student at Campbellsiville -* s 
College at Campbellsville, Kentucky) and so I found; that^ 
here was an excellent chance to do something in that field. 
The weekend after finishing your book, I sat down, rubbed* my 
hands together and typed out the manusceipt you will find 
fi enclosed (in carbon copy form). I plan to submit it first 
to the Baptist publication, Home Life Magazine. If I am 
successful in getting it published in a maBSzThST-i' "n*3* 
., ^submit At to a religious tract society for'fur^Ser^fiiftri-

"butrion. 

I dealt© exclusively with the history and 'false religion' 
overtones of the communists, feeling that the main idea to get 
over to Christian readers is the great communist threat to 
Christianity. You will find that I have expressed "grafc&ful 
thanks... to Mr. J. Edgar Hoover for permission to use quotes 
from his book Masters of Deceit..." in the credits under my 
by-line. Originally I had planned to say "based on J. Edgar 
Hoover's book, Masters of Deceit" but I thought that my 
personal religious speculations at the end of the article 
might be too 'doctrinal' for you. If you find my phraseology 
does not offend you or your book I will be glad to change 
the credits back to "based on". I would like your answer on 
this. 

If you cannot, for any reason, give me the go-ahead on 
my article please send your answer to me in the stamped, 
self -addressed envelope I have enclosed. If your answer 
is to the positive, please send that. I will be eagerly 
awaiting your answer. 

May I say in closing that your book was very rewarding 
and I hope it strikes home to everyone who reads it as true 
as it did to yours truly. 

Thank you very much for your valuable time and bother.

She above statement is not now, In fact it is very, very old* 
Almost as old as man himself.. It was a form of this disbelief In God* 3 
truth that caused the fall in the Garden Of Eden* It is the fruit of 
this disbelief t&ai has plagued the history of the world with war and 
injustice down through -Che ages* But nover before in the history 
of mankind has an MpMHWHH organised group so forcefully preached 
this lie as does an organisation that exists today. This organisation 
is modern communism. 

The communists consistently denounce all creeds but their own# 
They denounce all religions, not realising that theyy themselves , are 
the members of a fantastic anti-God religion. 

Unfortunately* the communists are not content with living in the 
sholl of their darkness alono, but are actively and feverishly working 
to enslave the rest of the world in their Godless idealogy* To 
Christian Americans, living in the sun of freedom* s holy light, tho 
attempts of the communists to send tho world into atheistic darkness 
seems impossibly futile. But two of dommunlsE^s biggest bosses, William 
Z. Foster of the Communist Party, U.S. A*, and Ilikita Khrushchev of the 
Soviot Union, have both confidently stated that the United States

throw of government, raiting the idealogy that eommunists today revere 
as their 'gospel.* 

Russia at this tin© was ripe fafegfrfop revolution. The people 
were hard*pressed by the autocracy of the czar and treason against 
the cruel monarchy government had been common for decades. But 
Russia was a backward* rural nation and for many years its people 
wore unable to initiate any unified revolution, A full«f lodged 
unrlsing finally appeared in 1917 # Shis was I,onin*s big chance 
and his communists* who called themselves Bolsheviks , seised power 
on the wings of the revolt Of the disorganized Russian people* 

A blood bath of cleaning out the capitalists or ^bourgeoisie* 
followed tho communists rise to power.. Ruthlessness was the by-»word 
of Lanin and tho extermination of his personal enemies gave him the 
chance to wa^m^mmsm experiment with it* Ruthlessness in carrying 
out tho policies of state also obses$ed hint* flo once said ,that tho 
party would not progress as it should until the members became more

U6storn MtaMflC Observers were struck with disbelief at the 
reports of Bolshevik justice. A ^stice that stripped man of his 
dignity and his very soul. A justice of terror* inhumanity, murder. 
A justice that could only be called injustice. 

Lenin* s AMMMfc- dictatorship +■ the dictatorship that he had 
- dreamed of since his youth - lasted only a little moro than six years. 
IliS death in January of 1924 brought the final face of eommuaism*o 
Big Four into view* She man who owned that face was Joseph Stalin. 

Lenin had started tho whoels rolling. Under his diroction the 
communists nad obtained their first hold on an entire country but it 
was under Stalin that the Soviet machine began its. march. Systematic- 
ally and irrovokably it swept over Europe and Asia* annexing country

His successes gave Stalin more power than any of the othor three

his death in X95»3 ho became its first fallen idol* Illkita Khrushchev 
denounced Stalin in one of the most damaging speeches ever written 
against a deceased national hero in 1956* Stalin was no longor 
Stalin the great emancipator and hero of the common man, How ho was 
Stalin the IWTBnr vicious* rovonge-minded dictator who used the 
glorious communist state as a tool in his struggle for supremo 
power* 

Khrushchev's denunciation of his former political boss Was Jjust 
another case of communist sacrificing fellow workers on the party 
block; anything to advance the party or cover \xp errors in communist 
doctrine We will learn more JtHttHHtt- about this *8.acrif icing*

ruthlessness known as communism came into being* An immoral systas 
invented and nurtured by Godless menj men who openly denied the 
existence of an immortal soul. 5?ho early denial of God by all four 
of those men led to a life dedicated to communism - communism in all 
its darlaiess and inhumanity*. One can only shutter to think of the 
judgment God must deal to these men who willingly worked, in Christloss 
darkness all their lives and encouraged others to do mm the same* 



'Just whot ore the gain themes of communist propaganda? TJhy arc -*^ 
many of its members go deeply f anatical about their cause? Uhy do they 
give up horn i family, loyalty to country to follow Harpist teachings?

on weak individuals and not party miscalculation. *Stj 

Communists claim to to anti»religious but they actually have a 
religion all their own as witnessed by these communists writings that 
strangely resemble Christian expressions: 

"So sacrifice one's personal interests and even one*s life without 
the slightest hesitation and even with a feeling of happiness, for the 
cause of the party..* is the highest manifestation of communist ethics**. 
The true communist. , .must feel that the party does not owe him a thing; 
it is ho S who owes everything, .* to the party." 

"To study the communist 'ma3tors'*«.is to be made 'perfect* as thoy 
wore i perfect'" (This could very woll be a horrible copy of our Lord's 
command to "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in 
heavon 3HHHHBMBB« is porfect"-- Hatthow 6s 48.) 

"Test your work against Marxist-Lenin principle if anything goos 
wrong*" (Again the communists copy the rules of Christian teachings 
for their own atheistic purposes because do we not teach that wo should 
tost our livos by Christ's principles?) 

«"*,, Anything that promotes the revolution is moral, legal, and 

beautiful." 

To its adherents, world communism is inevitable. They are as 
certain that comeunisa will rule the world as we are that Christ will 
return to rule it.* Their minds are trapped by Satan in a snare of 
error and unrighteousness. The horrible thing about it is that many 
of communism's followers believe that they are actually doing something 
to lead mankind to a brighter world. Perhaps this was what Paul meant 
when he wrote that in the last days there would come men "Having a form 
of godliness, but denying the power thereof* from such turn away,*. 
Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth"*- 
I Timothy 3«5-7# 



7^ 






As anything without the spirit of S» love, coc^unism breeds "*"*&3 



solely on self-preservation* Human lives are cheap in the communist 
camp and reputations fall and rise swiftly* Khrushchev's speech 
against Stalin is a clasoic example of this policy. Wmmm&M®®a& 
Wm&Wm&Ii 3* Edgar Hoover, director of the Fedreal Bureau of 
Investigation, in his hook Masters of Deceit, has this to say? 

"Communism is cannibalistic* Its servants are periodically 
offered ds sacrifices en the communist alter* If something goes 
wrong, the trouble lies, in communist eyes, not in the policy decreed 
on high but in its human instruments* WBOmSS^ms. Whenever the 
'infallible science* of Marxism-Leninism has boen incorrectly applied, 
disciplinary action must follow* w 

Russian-type communism first appeared in the United Statos in 
1949. Fanatical and crudely organized, its early attempts at penetra- 
tion into American life were decidely unsuccessful. She wild-eyed 
invitations to join an organization that claimed to be the advocate 
of violent revolution scared potential members away. The American 
people rejected the communist offers emphatically* But communism 
teday is far different from its forerunner of the early twenties* 
Today it is clothed in attractive modern attire, full of promises 
of a better life for mankind and eternal jjWH8gp^» world peace, 
But it is only dressed in new clothing and its promises are empty* 
It is the same f antlcal communist party W it has always been. Its 
ambitions to overthrow the governments of the free world remain the 
same. Its loyalty to Bussia has never actually lessened, despite 
party statements to the. contrary* 

What, then, is the answer to communism? Will they,' as. they have

to which she refers is sponsored by the Texas oilman, H. L. Hunt. There 
have been some correspondence with Mr. Hunt in which he requested 
suggestions and comments relative to his radio program. He was advised 
by letter that the Director thought it would be improper for him to offer 
suggestions. The program is reportedly a religious and patriotic educational 
movement incorporated as a charitable foundation. Some of Its programs 
have been critical of the United States Supreme Court, and others have made 
extreme proposals regarding controversial subjects. J. Wayne Poucher 
is radio minister of the foundation. ,

Kemper informed him that his request would be brought to the Director's attention. 
Subsequently he wrote the Director on 9-14-59 enclosing a book review he wrote on 
"Masters of Deceit" which was published in the newspaper issued by the 352nd Civil 
Affairs Headquarters in which unit Boone is a Colonel in the reserve forces. He also

was an FBI Agent. 

the alleged FBI Agent displayed photographs of| fyife in a compromising,

Josef .Edmonel Gellerajann (New Xprkt yantage Press t 1959)

line) v/ill recall their late comrade-^n-arms* Ma joy 'Geilenneuw ' 
Our remarkable and colorful colleague has. leftfc us an unfinished 
book which was fortunately sufficiently advanced to permit post- 
humous publication by his wife* The book endeavors to answer the 
question* "Can a distinguished general become a successful 
statesman? Or is there- something in the cloistered*mind pattern 
of military training that sets him apart #•*?" Surely this theme 
is of interest to officers whose duties so often fall in the new 
man f s land between "generals* and "statesmen** 

■ Qellexman seeks the answer to his question in impressionistic 
sketches of the lives of eight famous generals who turned to 
political careers* He shows how entrance into high politics affect* 
ed the personal life of each subject and the consequences for his 
nation* Two of these generals^statesmen are American t Grant and 
MacArthur* Two are 'French i Pdtain and De Gaulle* Three are 
German.* Hindenburg* iudenxorff and Schleicher* The other is the 
great Finn* Mannerhe&ru What quality is common to this hetero- 
geneous group 2nd why d6es it not include such generals~statesmen 
b#: Washington, Jackson* Napoleon and Bolivor? The answer is ' 
found in the -Author f a design to limit his ctudy to T>rpfe l ssioflp^ f 
fipyedy military men who f after a full 'lifetime of military ser- 
vice* are called t or bring themselves* into the treacherous cur- 
rents of political life* x , <~. : .. 

. ■ -Whether by -reason of the iiuthpr's intent or because 'of the 
unfortunate death which prevented his finishing the work, there is 
no final chapter- of conclusions* The Reader, is lsftto his own 
conclusions* J^zt; the implications.. of most of Jhe sketches. are 
fairly clear and the. -Author *s viewpoint,, is fs?eguently revealed by 
his incisive and at tome irreverent .comments (Gellermann the ■ 
Author- ia eminently ,in character >dtk;Gellerma|in the Major*) The 
impressions >of this Reviewer f arranged : from the'best-to the worst 
of these . : generals~states&aen in -descending order* were as follows t

and moral | as well as -his military, qualities were ^responsible in 
large measure: for the survival of Finland*. \ -

politics or international affairs he got ir,to trouble." His ventures

The Turn of the Tide 
Arthur Bryant (New York* Doubleday, 195?) 

Here is another of the many memoirs of V/orld War II as taken 
from the diary of Pield-Marshal lord Alanbrooke frcm the years 
1939-1943 and enlarged upon by the author. The diary itself 
was somewhat unusual in that it comprised a series of lock bound 
note books in which Brooke attempted each evening to enter the 
days events for transmittal to his wife, stressing his ctan view- 
points and opinions. As a result there are long passages of 
trivia which, to the military mind, might well have been omitted 
frcm this volume, I do not believe, the present day student of 
World War II is interested in a vivid description of the view . ■ 
from the Hotel in Casablanca while world shattering plans are 
being discussed in the adjoining rooms. 

For the American military student, we have another example 
of the British attempt to show their mastership of strategy,- ' 
and a number of blunt statements to the effect that there was a 
lack of strategic knowledge among the leaders of their .American 
Allies, Brooke says candidly that he often wondered since the 
war how different matters might have been if he had MacArthur 
instead of Marshall to deal with, "Fran everything I saw of him, 
I put him down as .the greatest general of the war." And yet, 
MacArthur was behind Aimiral King, who, apparently was always 
a thorn in the side of Brooke, insisting on the fight in the 
Pacific. Many times Brooke indicates his almost complete ig- 
norance of the pacific situation,, which will not prompt an Am- 
erican to accept Montgomery's opinion that Brooke was "The great- 
est soldier, sailor, or airman produced by any country taking 
part in the last war." Montgomery must h^ve made the statement 
with tongue in cheek, since Monty «s moat recent literary effort 
indicates he might apply the some statement to himself* 

It appears to this reader that Brooke's greatest days are 
those prior to the evacuation of the British Expeditionary 
Forces at Dunkirk, prom the day of mobilization, 3 Sept 1939 
to withdrawal from Prance in May 1940, there is nothing but 
action on the part of Bsooke' * he seemed to be everywhere. 

Early in the x*ar, in Oct of 1939* he was aware of the 
magnitude of the refugee and displaced persons problem. In 
the area of Lille he saw the swarms of Belgians, Poles and dis- 
placed Saar miners and even Italians, with the "opportunities 
for spying unlimited, h t^ forward area is still craned with 
civilians that ought to be evacuated, and no. real serious, efforts 
seem to be made to organize civilian labour to prepare defenses 
that ore essential ... I feel that the Germans would h*ve 
been tackling the situation very differently.". 



— 3' *• 



later in May 1940 f a few days before the evacuation he 
noted the "refugee problem was getting Worse and worse," 

During the winter months Brooke had worked out a scheme 
for the evacuation of 80Q f 000 of the population of the Lille 
area to northwest France., which was put into effect* But 
they had run into German airaored forces and were congesting 
all roads in an effort to return Home* The problem was sol-* 
ved by turning them over to the Pref et at Lille who took over 
and handled the situation* 

Reference to Belgian Officers above impresses this reader 
with the complete lack of trust on the part of Brooke with the 
French high command and mony Belgian officers* It appeared 
to him the French were more interested ir good food than in 
discussing strategy , He doubted the ability of both allies to 
stand up to the German advance, and in this he was Correct • 
About this time he sings his praises for his own cmpatriots - 
first among -them Montgomery - a close alliance which continued 
until the end of the war, and which has been all too frequents 
ly-' documented io be repeatel here* It is amusing to note that 
in a long distance telephone conversation with Monty at the 
height of the -campaign in Africa many months later , Brooke told 
Monty he had not read a dispatch from jilexander because, he was 
•going .grouse sliooting, and could not «remain in touch with the 
strategic situation whilst in a grouse-butt «* Thus the British 
mind* 

While the book is full of superlatives for his- compatriots* 
he reserves the greated-praise for Churchill, whan he had naver 
met until 14 June 1940, and then over the telephone* Here em- 
inences the real. theme of the book * the strategic .planning for 
global victory by these t«o great British leaders* After b6- 
coming Chief of the Imperial General Staff in November 1941*. 
Churchill took Brooke- into his innermost confidence even re- 
lating his plan for bringing the US into the war* "Trying to 
.ensure, that under any .given circumstances the US' would also 
be brought in • • • « When the Japanese solved that problem 
on 7 Ite.cember 1941#.the loss of US Naval, strength -was of less 
importance .than the fact that the US was in # The nex^ day at 
a Chief a of Staff meeting when it was suggested *t he- -cautious ' 
approach to iSmerica be continued t the -Prime Minister ^answered* " 
*0h|. that is the way we talked to her while we were wooing her; 
now.thnt she.. is in- the harem, we talk to h-ar quite differently** 

$rcn the entrance of the US into the war, the book be- 
^omes^ controversial and at tines contains information which , in- 
dicates a lack of proper research as to the facts, 

Brooke found President Roosevelt a- chaining man, wise in 
.politics hut not well versed in -strategy * the same position in 
which he sometimes placed the Prime Minister.*. Efe -respected . 



Harry Hopkins, who had influence even if he did not have an 
office* He respected Marshall ~ his opposite member - for his 
organizational ability but criticized Marshall's strategic 
knowledge and ability. 

He admired. Eisenhower for his personality and ability to. 
handle the political situation among the Allies but "had little 
confidence in his ability to handle the military situations 
confronting hiin" in North Africa* Brooke takes full credit 
for the North African Operation (Torch) and claims for the 
progressive success in Sicily and Italy thus making him the 
master mind of the var. I cm sure many will refute this assump- 
tion* 

It -is regretoble the respect and affection in which Brooke 
was held by his close American associates was not more fully 
reciprocated. 

His was the top planning responsibility on a world wide 
basis with assists from Marshall and all the other Joint Chiefs 
of Staff* Only history will tell whether his criticisms were 
correct*

MASTERS OF DIXCST 

By j* ^dgar Hoover (Henry Hjlt and Co* l;«j8) 

Here is the story of Coix?unisra in the United States and tiJW 
to fight it. In tiiis bo;k the renowned Director of the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation has presented o loyn-.n's guidebook for 
understanding* identifying, and coobatting the Conraunist con- 
spiracy in this country. Masters of Deceit contains a ponetgrat- 
ing analysis of the structure and organization of the itoerican 
Communist party, and a vivid description of the strategy and 
tactics which it used in attempting to further the goals of 
international coraDuniss.* 

V/ith the possible exception of .arty sobers, both past and 
present » there is probably no one in this country in a better 
position to evaluate the internal threat of coonmnisn than 
j. .Jidgar Hoover. Since 1919* when he raade an extensive study of 
coDtfunist doctrine, and identified its dangers to the ;m>erican 
way jf life, he has been in the forefront of the fight against 
internal corounxsn:.* His nnny years ^s head of the Federal govern- 
ment agency designated to protect the country frop internal 
subversion qunlify hir? to speak with unquesti mnble authority 
on the history of the ; # nericnn Crarunist I arty, and its structure, 
methods f coop ^s it ion, nnd activities, 

hr 9 Hoover )pens the bo )k with rn historical and theoretical 
discussion of the origin of Corxmnisn), first abroad -.nd then in 
this country. The str.rt of the African Coraunist Party ns a; 
soall disorganized band of fanatics in 19 19 is described, as is 
its gradual growth in strength* influence, end power* nnd its 
transf ornation into a " dedicated, consnirntorial ^roup operating- 
under Dodern conditions as ~,n aro of revolution." Theru follows 
a valuable section :>n the internal structure „-f the Tarty: How 
it is organized; how its leaders and raerabers live; how the party's 
educational program operates; dUd its purposes? how the Coosunist 
nan is fashioned through Cou?nunist indoctrination, literature, 
and the party press * 

The 1 arty 1 s attack on the existing society through raass 
agitation, infiltration, and organization r &onts n is described- 
Here the reader is shown the tactics eroployed to hoodwink trust- 
ful citizens. The iarty attacks our society not only through 
open activity, but also through underground, channels ♦ In 
recent years, particularly the period frop 1951*1955 1 the under- 
ground hr.s ployed an inportant role in Coonunist strategy , 
hiding sen and records* 

Masters of Deceit is documented by actual case histories, 
although these vignettes suffer somewhat fron the lack of real 
nnaes, dates nnd places * they clarify the subjects discussed and

maintain n continuous pattern of absorbing reading* «n index f 

appendices, a bibliography of major Communist classics, and a 

glossary of over 40 terms frequently used by Communists all 
odd to the value of the book* 

Mr* Hoover makes several points worthy of mention*- He 
forcefully states that the fight against Communism must be 
"waged with full regard for the historic liberties of this groat 
nation* This is the fundamental premise of any attack against 
communism. " (Emphasis supplied by Mr, Hoover), "Smears , 
character ossasinatdon and the scattering of irresponsible charges 
•are said to* hinder rather than aid the fight against communism*" 
«*lso Mr* Hoover takes pains to moke clear that in spite of the 
fact that tae Communists have concentrated their efforts on 
labor union ^members » as well as on Negrx\s t Jews, ana other din or i- 
ties, the overwhelming majority of persons in these groups have 
no sympathy for communism or its methods and goals* 

tor* Hoover ! s primary thesis is that internal Commumism remains 
a grave threat to the security and well being jf this country* 
although the Communist larty lias been experiencing severe troubles 
in the lost 10 years including infiltration of FBI agents, the 
prosecution and conviction of many of its leaders , the disaffec- 
tion of many others , and the decline of membership from a high of 
80,000 in the "ij.O's" to 2?., 000 or less, Mr* \ijjver points >ut 
that numbers are liot an indication of stren^ht, and that the 
highly organized, tightly disciplined body is still a threat to 
our nation and everything for which it stands* In combatting 
this menace Mr» Stover calls for assistance from all*. The 
citizen is asked to recognize the communist's elates and tech- 
niques so that he is not fooled into becoming an innocent victim* 
Mr. Hoover demonstrates that information ^iven by the ordinary 
citizen is often of vital assistance to him and his orsanisation*. 

^Itfcfough written for the general public (the author des- 
cribes it "as in almost primer torn") the, book contains much 
useful material for those who have r, more, pr:>f ossioml interest 
in the subject, and particuarly for tirose in the civil affairs 
branch of the servises. hv 9 Hoover's vast experience in combatt- 
ing the communist menace in this country, as recordrd in this 
b;ok, provides excellent source m-.t^rial for those who may 
someday be faced with a communist munnce in another land* By 
relating in detail the character of the individual communist, the 
structure of the party, and its techniques of stirring unrest 
and dissension, and of arousing and controlling public fo^ling» 
Mr* Hoover 'a- s provided a fund £ kn ow ledge which could not heSp 
but be useful to a governing body in discovering and identifying 
Commuqists, and defeating tnoir elaborate schar.es and plots*

points oat that on£ can *t 'tell by looking t sihc6 a cormunist nay

any social or class level. However* Mr. H6over has set forth five 
categories of Communists and their helpers* and described then in 
a manner helpful to identification* Set forth are the "hard cofe* 
party member* th6 concealed party members., the fellow travelers* 
the opportunists* and the "dupes** The distinct idn between the 
paid functionary and the ordinary worker is drawn* as * is* that 
between the numbers assigned to a cell (now called duB)* and 
those operating at large* Of the different categories* the oon~ 
Odaled party member nay be the most dangerous* since many of the 
hard core members are leaders who 'make little attempt at conceal- 
rnent.* Once identifiedi of course* the different groups should 
be treated differently* e # g # the dupe may need only to be informed 
of his errors* while to wean the hard .core member away from the 
party is exceedingly difficult since it requires a drastic change 
in his beliefs* and his entire **ay of life* 

Mr* Hoover has also'related in detail the communist techniques 
and method© of agitation.* and particularly in arousing dissension 
and discentent* Local tragedies and court cases are grist for their 
nill, and even the cock book is not overlooked in prqparandizing

The harsh and ingenious methods of raising finances, primarily 
thorugh^ the efforts of the lower ranking members* is set forth*. One

The Memoirs of ELeld-Marshal 
The Viscount Montgomery of Alamein 

. (New York, World Publishing Company, 1958) 

These excellent memoirs, tracing the path which Montgomery 
took an a military career of fifty years duration, illuminate 
the complex personality of the field-Marshal as no other book 
ras yet done. Here is a career of unusual scope, described 
with no attempt at great writing by a man who hammered his 
way to fame. The book is important for the light it casts 
upon Montgomery himself- essential to an understanding of 
his military philosophy, indispensable to the military his- 
torian • and valuable to the student of military leadership. 
As such, it deserves reading by all officers. Of particular 

n?*^ *TJ. herQ > hcweve ^ *** Montgomery's views concerning 
Civil Affairs and Military Government. 

„ Stoe'ProMeos which Montgomery faced at tte end of World 
War n, as commander of the 21st Army Group, were appalling. 
m his words, »I had suddenly become responsible for the go- 
vernment and well-being of about twenty million Germans 
{.including one and one-half million German soldiers). Tre- 
mendous problems would be Required to be handled and if thev 
were not solved before the winter began, nany Germans would 
die of starvation, exposure, and disease*" Transport and 
communication services had ceased to function and industry 
and agriculture were largely at a. standstill. The popu-- ■ 
lation had to be fed, housed, and kept free from disease, 
in 1ii at order* ' 

Since no other form of governmental organization to 
govern the British zone of Germany had been evolved by 
Montgomery's political superiors, he imposed Military Govern- 
ment' through the Army as a temporary expedient . Corps, divi- 
sion, brigade and regimental headquarters were given areas ' 
of responsibility corresponding to the local civil counties, 
boroughs, rural districts, and so on. At the same time, he 
moved to establish the civil divisions of- the Allied Control 
Council in Germany as quickly as possible, so that these 
divisions could begin dealing with local German governmental 
units themselves. 

Through a series of public messages to'the German popu-' 
lation, Montgomery explained his purposes, the method of de- 
mobilization he intended to employ and the reasons for it 
(to gather up the arms and return agricultural workers to 
SXr tenr f st fle&is), and the policy of non-fraternization. 
"U'-e are) determined that you should- learn your lesson — 
not only that you have been defeated, which you must know 
by now, but that you, your nation, were again guilty of be- 
ginning the war. * * # (E)very nation is responsible for 



- 9- 



mwsiiv 



SiJ?'"** , !! J*"? 8 "^ ^e policy of non~fraterni- 
zation was relaxed by degrees throughout the summer of 1945. 

Montgomery found the attitude of the German population to 
be on the whole correct. They were willing to obey any or- 
ders issued to them, their chief fear being that ttey might 
be t.urned over to the Russians. Generally, they believed 
that there would sooner- or later be another war to stop the 
march of Asiatic hordes, led by Russia, into Western Europe* 

*u D i ffifrultie s with the Russians began on the very day .that 
the Commanders-in-Chief signed the Allied declaration regar- 
ding the unconditional surrender of Germany and inaugerated 
the Control Council. Marshal Zhukov would not discuss esta- 
bjasfting Control Council machinery— or even allow reconnais- 
sance parties into Berlin until the American and British tac- 
tical units withdrew within the boundaries of their respec- 
tive zones. It was finally agreed that African and British 
troops would withdraw to their zones in Germany at the same 
•p£? e «2? 4 RlJssian troo I» withdrew to their zone in Austria* 
* x? ritish and u ; s » forces were also given access to Berlin 
at the same time (July 1-4, 1945). . 

It became clear to MontgoiiEry that the Russians were not 
going to agree to the reconstitution of Germany as one eco- 
nomxc^whole. He considered it- a grave error to divide Ger- 
many into- three separate zones, but, this decision having 
been made, he set about putting his owi house in order* 
Montgomery succeeded in getting enough workers into the ' 
fields to bring -in the harvest, coal production was raised, 
but only slowly, the fishing industry revived, and transpor- 
tation facilities encouraged. Tradition: lly, Eastern Germany 
tedproduced a surplus of food to feed the Astern area, while 
west Germany was the manufacturing heartland; Since the Rus- 
sians were "creating a desert in their zone «, Montgomery 
could expect no food supplies from that source. All of this 
meant short rations and cold houses during the coming winter. 

Politically, Montgomery encouraged tte restoration of local 
self-government on democratic principles. He psrmitted trade 
unionism to grow naturally, without pressure, so that unions 
would not fall into fascist or communist hands. Nazis were 
purged from office without exception and the judicial system 
overhauled. So far as education was concerned, it was neces- 
sary to eradicate all Nazi teaching and ideology from text- 
books and screen all school faculties before scliools and 
universities could be reopened. 

By October 1945, it was ctear to Montgomery that the Rus- 
sians would never permit Pour-Power government of Germany 
as a whole, and that the Western powers must prepare for a 
continuous struggle over a period of years. This meant that 
it was no longer practicable to de-industrialize the Ruhr.

strength in tSrnmod services had to bo nainta^d, since 
the Hussions understood nothing else* 

Meanwhile* the transition was taking place froo o completely 
mlitary nachine set up by the 21 st Amy Group to a civilian 
organization in which there was a Oeman administration with 
British civilian control at the top* In the first phase, 
Corps District Germanders dealt with the local population 
through their own Military Government staffs. In the second 
phase f Regional Ccnnissioners were trained to replace Corps 
District Commanders as Military Governors* In the third 
phase f Corps District Commanders ceased being Military Governors* 
In the fourth phase, personnel of Military Goverment detach- 
ments were gradually transferred to a civilian status and 
their strength much reduced* 

In the third phase, put into effect about April 191*6* Corps 
District Commanders had no responsibility for civil admin- 
istration other than as troop commanders called up to act- 
in support of the civil power or to lend if some adminis- 
trative assistance* 

In phase four* the red essence of the change was the shift 
from actual government by the military fc-ces to self-govern- 
ment by the Geimans with British control ana supervision 
exercised by British civilians. Military forces were reserved 
for emergency use only* 

Montgomery mokes the important point th-vb the tine to expect 
trouble in an occupied country is when things seen to be im- 
proving, i. e. ., when the local population hns sufficient food 
and is keeping **am. It is then that they will see that the 
recovery of their nation will not necessarily benefit them? 
because of reparations, a nd rapid demobilization would lead 
to substantial unemployment. This is fertile ground in irtiich 
the seeds of discontent and trouble can te sown, and require 
the maintenance of adequate troop strength. Moreover, the 
period of National Socialism before the war was a time of 
full employment and a high standard of living for the German 
people. To' prevent thorn from looking backward with longing 
to those days, during their present period of misery and want, 
Montgomery outlined several positive steps which had to be 
taken» 

Montgomery pressed his political superiors to reach agreement 
as to what the western border of Germany was to be. "Vfe 
must tell the German people what Germany is to consist of«» 
Second, a higher level of industry for Germany had to be 
permitted, so that a reasonable standard of living could be 
attained, unemployment lessened, and the Western Zones mode 
self-sufficient. Some sort of central administration had 
to be provided for the Western Zones. Fourth, an immediate 
xncrease in the food ration was essentia}. Fifth, the growth 
of aemocratic political organizations hou ^o'bs encouraged 
and the process of de-nfezification completed.- Sixth, con- 



tacts with the outside world should be encouraged so that 
the Gemans could study a new ideology to replace that of 
the Nazis* Six* the whole age group f 18 - 25 years f who hod 
been brought up in an atmosphere of National Socialise had 
to be reeducated* Seventh, the younger children had to be 
educated correctly* 

Although Montgomery did not ranoin or the job to see these 
aims carried out «~ having been appointe 7; Chief of the Imperial 
General Staff — his successors did, and Monty's early conclu« 
sions turned out to be sound. These nenoirs well illustrate 
that, in the field of Civil /if fairs and Military Goverment, 
no area nay be allowed to lie tenpornrily*doraant, it is 
necessary to advance on oil fronts at once*

Gorman Rule In Russia 1941*1945 

A Study of Occupation Policies 

By Alexander D'allin. Published by The fecfctllon Co., 1957 

Scholarship, insight and stylo combine to, make this 695 
page book on important contribution to historical knowledge genorally 
but more significant it is an exhaustive case history troatise • 
for the student of Oivil Affairs of "how* and "how not* to 
conduct civil affairs and military government operations* 
SMs tone, with its hundreds of footnotes, is a gold nine of 
information, but it could no more be considqrod light, casual 
reading than would be Blockstone*s Commentaries on the Common 
low of Snaland. . 

The vanture that began with Hitler'^ invasion of tho 
Soviet Union in June, I941 and ended in tho final Gorman 
debacle of ipril, 1945, is one of tho dramatic stories of his- 
tory, inviting obvious oonparisons with tho Napoleonic campaign 
against Russia. la magnitude, significance and eloquences, 
it dwarfs any other episode of the Second World War. Few battles 
in History hove, a better title than the battle of Stalingrad to 
rank among the 'decisive bottles of the world". Few military 
defeats, hove been so complete and overwhelming as that which 
overtook Hitler »» forces at tho hands of the Soviet armies in the 
spring of I945. 

From the summer of I941 to the summer of 1944, large ports - 
400,000 square miles - of the Soviet Union were under Geroan 
occupation. *or the next year, several millions of forcer s oviet 
citizens were* under G eroan control as soldiers, prisoners, laborors 
and refugees. ■ *11 told, approximately 65 million people fell under 
^eroan rule during tho course of tae ^uesjion G aopaign. 

Dallin presents, exclusively from the Geroan side, a thorough 
and detailed account of the policies and actions of the Geroan 
authorities, civil and military, in thoir dealings with occupied 
Soviet- territory and with Soviet citizons. 

In the author*s own words, this is the way he set about doing 
it* * Part I of this book essays to describe the historical setting 
of the Geroan invasion in 1941, the motivation of tho German leader- 
ship, the first oonth of the war, and the. organization of Geroan 
occupation government. Part II surveys German long-range goals, 
with particular emphasis on the national question, and their im- 
plementation in the various areas of occupation - Ukraine. Belo- 
russia, Baltic States, Caucasus, Cyimoa and Groat Russia proper - 
each reflecting a different set of Geroan promises, practices and 
personalities, and provoking bitter disputes cnans tliom. Port III 
seeks to analyse the Geroan approach to certain tnjor functional

IV discusses German political policy, propaganda, and utili- 
zotion of defectors, and concludes with a sketch of the *political 
warfare* experiments in the last year of the war*" 

Dollin, of ..spcesslty, delfoited his territory rather strictly. 
He has excluded -altogether military operations.- ond diplomacy. He 
has node no attempt to paint a picture of conditions in the occupied 
regions* of the Soviet Union*' 

^ The fabric he weaves is in many «• indeed in Dost ~ respects a 
horrifying story. Cruelty ond brutality hove boon comoon enough in 
all ages, especially in war. But it. may bo doubted whether *hoy 
have been so unrestrainedly indulged in oodern t foe's or on so vast 
a^ scale* It is certain that they have never been practiced in so 
whole-hearted and unashamed a way by a people possessing all the 
veneer of on educated civil izati>n. For this reason it is un- 
necessary to draw up on indictment of German policy on Geraon 
a ?*V 1 ? S - in .' the Sovici; Tfoion* It is only necessary to quote the 
official directives, and to odd that there is aople evidence that 
they were faithfully carried out so long as. it remained physically 
possible to do so. This Dallin ably does. There is scarcely o 
sign of dissent fro©, or protest against , any measure prescribed or 
recoDoendedi except * and that rarely enough r on grounds of to-. 
practicability or of incompotability with sorao other directive, 

When the Wohrmocht smashed into Russia, Hitler had plans 
for military victory and for gathering victories economic fruits, 
but none for enlisting the help of the Ru^sicn peonle o/zainst the 
Stalinist systoo. he was pledged to destroy. 

The treatoent of human beiigsfrom. regions beyond the eastern 
frontiers of the Reich was notable fron the first* in Dallin's 
words, for »the carefree way in which all huoan and political 
implications were ignored," Hitler*s original desire to exclude 
these Untermenschen fron Geroon soil broke down owing to the need 
for »subhuDan» labor. Fron? the ooroent of the first victorious 
campaign in the summer of 1941, prisoners of w-r were "carried 
off and put to work in Germany to sustain the war efforts,' Froro 
the beginning of 1942, the recruitment of the civilian population 
in occupied territories, at first voluntarily, later under the. 
most sovege procedures of compulsion, went on and car loads of 
men ond women from White Bussia and the Ukraine were dispatched 
to Germany totaling in the end 2,800,000 people. 

Towards these millions transported to Geroany and those left 
behind in Geroan control toe policy was clearly defined: »Jt 
is a matter of total indifference to me (said Himraler) how the 
Russians, how the Czechs, fare „ . , Whether the other peoples

An "Ostminis.terium* under Rosenberg was created for civil 
administration of the occupied territories t and a sworn of sec** 
ond-rate administrators, nicknamed "golden pheasants »* moved in 
to positions of authority and luxury to exploit the resources

Rosenberg was plunged immediately into the chaos of per- 
sonal and jurisdictional conflicts that characterized the 
* authoritarian anarchy* of National Socialise The result - 
"Ostpolitik" **as seldom made in the Ostministerium* ' 

Economic policy in the occupied territory was formulated 
in two basic directions, known disrespect ively as *Brown Camel" 
and "Green Jackass*; it amounted to mere colonial exploitation 
and was unsuccessful* 

Expediency compelled slow and grudging changes of policy 
but almost in every aspect of *Ostpolitik« there was too little 
understanding and what understanding there was invariably cane 
too late* 

The German occupation of Russian was an economic failure, 
ultimately a Dilitary failure but above all a political failure* 

iltfcough D a llin elaborately docuoents his conclusion that 
German occupation of Russia was a failure in every sense because 
it consisted of a narrowly self -centered despoiling of Eastern 
manpower and resource and the absence of any constructive or 
benevolent steps which he attributes to the basic efficiency 
of National Socialism itself, to dote the Vest's Dilitary and 
political leaders have given little indications of great interest 
or clarity or enlightenment on subjects like "political war- 
fare" and "occupation***

Dear Sir: 



I am reading Masters of Deceit, and am beginning 
to realize what a great contribution you continue to make not only 
to our country, but to the entire free world and all freedom lovers. 

May God continue to strengthen you and watch over 
your work and efforts. Many of us regard you highly, though so 
many fail to write. 

Keep up your great work, for you inspire many of 
us to be better citizens - and maybe because of you dumb Americans 
(and all those sympathetic to those Communist devils) will see the 
light. 



Sincerely yours,

Dear Sir: ^ 

o 

I have just finished reading your novel " Masters of Deceit" , and I am writing 
this to let you know how much I enjoyed and appreciated your book. Your book has exposed 
the Communist for what he really is, a liar, a cheat and a direct menace to this country 
and our way of life* 

Your book was brought to my attention during a lecture given by Mr* Sullivan of 
your department • Both your book and Mr Sullivans lecture have left me with an understanding 
of communist methods and operations. This understanding has helped me to realize the true? !L 
meaning of the communist doctrine as preached by Nikita Krushchev on his recent visit to 
this country, Krushchev 1 s visit to this country has been a political sounding board for 
communist propaganda as your book amply showed* 

In closing I wish to extend to you and your department the best of luck in your 
present fight against communism and best wishes for any future writings that you may 
contemplate . Any future books written by you on this subject will be eagerly looked foward 
to*

BLESSED SACRAMENT EXPOSED, AND A PROCESSION LED BY

MONASTERY WITH THE NUNS CHANTING HYMNS. 

THE MIRACULOUS INFANT JESUS SEEMS TO LOVE THESE 

DEVOTIONS FOR HE IS UNFAILING IN HIS ANSWER TO 

PRAYER. 



j DEVOTE 



NO PETITION IS TOO GREAT TO ASK OF THE INFANT JESUS OF 
PRAGUE 
Father Hyland, Chaplain of Dannemora Prison, New York 
was in need of a 'Church for the prisoners and was ad- 
vised, by a Carmelite Nun to whom he wrote for aid, to 
confidently write a check for the amount he needed and 
place it in the hand of the Infant, assuring Father 
that the Infant would supply the money on the date he 
would need it. Father received not only enough money 
for a small Church but for the largest in the County. 

Most remarkable is the Women's Federal Savings and 
•Loan Association of Cleveland, which is honoring the 
Infant of Prague publicly by keeping His Statue in 
its front office and adorned with fresh flowers 
twice a week. Anyone in doubt of getting their loan 
granted is advised to ask the Miraculous Infant Jesus 
of Prague for aid. He never fails to answer their ap- 
peals... .The company being multiply blessed ha.s grown 
front assets of only eighty-five thousand dollars in 
1936 to more than fifty-two million dollars. 

Many vocations have been fostered and saved; number- 
, less bad marriages have been averted and replaced by 
. holy, happy marriages j thousands of cures of soul, 
; mind and body have been granted by the Miraculous In- 
fant of Prague. 

And we Carmelites wish also to acknowledge our 
j thanksgiving to the goodness of the Miraculous Infant 
;of Prague, for when we came to Jackson, Miss., to make 
this new Foundation, we placed our burdens and our 
struggles in His Hands and to this day He has helped 
us in all our needs and "AS LONG AS WE HONOR HIM WE 
SHALL NOT WANT," we are sure. 



HELP US SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF THE MIRACULOUS INFANT 
JESUS.... HELP US REACH MANY HOMES BY SENDING US THE 
J^MES OF YOUR NEIGHBORS, FRIENDS AND THOSE IN YOUR 

WRITE FOR FOLDERS THAT YOU MAY DISTRIBUTE THEM AMONG 
YOUR ACQUAINTANCES. 



IF YOU ALREADY HAVE ONE OF THESE FOLDERS GIVE THIS ONE 
TO YOUR NEIGHBOR. 



NOW IS THE TIME TO PRAY FOR PEACE 

HELP US ASK THE MIRACULOUS INFANT JESUS OF PRAGUE 7.0 

INCREASE OUR DEVOTION TO THE IMMACULATE HEARS? OF MARY 
WHO SAID TO LUCY AT FATIMA: "WHEN MY IMMACULATE HEART 
WILL TRIUMPH, THE WORLD WILL HAVE PEACE." 

DO NOT FORGET YOUR FIVE FIRST SATURDAYS 



The purpose of this devotion and the magnificent pro- A« 
mise connected therewith were revealed on December 10, 
1925, when Our Lady of Fatiaa, together with the Child 
Jesus elevated on a cloud, returned as she had promis- 
ed Lucy she would to request the Communions of Repara- 
tion on the First Saturdays. The -Child Jesus spoke 1 
first: "Have pity on the . Heart of your Most Holy I 
Mother. It is covered with the thorns with which un- I 
grateful men pierce it at every moment, and there is I 
no one to remove them with an act of Reparation. " 
Then Our Lady spoke: 



"MY CHILD, BEHOLD MY HEART SURROUNDED 
WITH THE THORNS WHICH UNGRATEFUL MEN 
PLACE THEREIN AT EVERY MOMENT BY 
THEIR BLASPHEMIES AND INGRATITUDE. 
YOU AT LEAST, TRY TO CONSOLE ME AND 
TELL THEM THAT I PROMISE TO HELP AT 
THE HOUR OF DEATH WITH THE GRACES 
NEEDED FOR SALVATION, WHOEVER ON THE 
FIRST SATURDAY OF FIVE CONSECUTIVE 
MONTHS, SHALL CONFESS AND RECEIVE 
HOLY COMMUNION, RECITE FIVE DECADES 
OF THE ROSARY AND KEEP ME COMPANY FOR 
FIFTEEN MINUTES WHILE MEDITATING ON 
THE FIFTEEN MYSTERIES OF THE ROSARY, 
WITH THE INTENTION OF MAKING REPARA- 
TION TO ME. 

History has recorded as having taken place, many of 
the terrible disasters predicted by the Mother of God 
in 1917* These things cannot be undone. But we still 
have our futures ahead of us. They can be happy fu- 
tures, filled with peace if we live our lives accord- 
ing to Our Lady's requests. 

These requests which form the "PEACE PLAN FROM HEAV- 
EN" — our only hop© are: 1) penance and reparation: ("The 
sacrifice required of every person is the fulfillment 
of his duties in life and the observance of My Law. 
This is the penance that I now ask and require."} 
2) the daily recitation of the Rosary: 3) the Five 
First Saturdays; U) Consecration to the Immaculate 
Heart of Mary; and 5) the wearing of the Brown Scapu- 
lar. 



A SCAPULAR WILL BE SENT UPON REQUEST.

JESUS THE KING OF KINGS 

POPE JOHN THE mil wrote in his first Encyclical: 

"We exhort to this harmony and peace those, particu- 
larly, who hold the reins of governments in their 
hands... God created men not as enemies but as brothers 
...Already there has been enough strife among men* Al- 
ready far too many thousands of young men, in the flow- 
er of their age, have poured out their blood. .To check 
ambition," the grasping of what is another's, and ri- 
valry, which are the causes of war, nothing is better 
adapted than Christian virtue, and especially justice. 

If nations do not aim at this fraternal unity which 
must rest on the precepts of justice and be nourished 
by charity, conditions of gravest crisis remain....... 

If, which God prevent, a new war breaks out, nothing 
else will await or confront all peoples, (such are the 
dreadful armaments which our age brings into play) but 
appalling destruction and ruinj and this, whether they 
are victor or vanquished."

ORIGIN OF THE INFANT JESUS OF PRAGUE . 

The statue was brought from Spain to Prague,' Bohemis 
by Maria Manriquez de Lara in 1556 with the promise, 

"This Santo Nino Jesus will bring peace and piety to 
that nation now seething in the caldron of religious 

strife and war ...and from the Queen City of that 

Kingdom it will come to be known §s the Infant Jesus 
of Prague among peoples of many lands... Grace, peace 
and mercy shall come to the land He hath chosen for 
His dwelling place. Its people shall be His people 
and He shall be their Little King." 

When the GLscalced Carmelite Fathers came from' 
Austria, Italy and Spain and founded a Monastery in 
Prague, after four years of miserable existence 
due to poverty and the chaos of the country, thel 
Miraculous Infant of Prague was brought to them by! 
the aged Princess Polyzena Lobkoeitz with the pro-! 
phetic words, 

»As long as you honor Me you shaU not want." 

It would seem, relates the early historian- 
of Prague, Father Emmerich, that the merciful Father 
wished to say to the sorely tried brethren: "See and ! 
honor this My Son, the aver Blessed Child Jesus in 
this holy image. 

YOU Y/ILL FIND HIM A PROVIDENT FOSTER- 
FATHER, A POVJSRFUL PROTECTOR AND ABOVE ALL,. A FAITHFUL 

HELPER IN NEED AS LONG AS YOU VENERATE THIS IMAGE 

YOU SHALL NOT WANT." 

The statue was received in Carmel with joy and it. 
was not long until the financial status improved. From- 
Frague devotion has spread to the Infant King through-: 
out the world. The Miraculous Infant Jesus of Prague 
is VICTOR IN WARS, Country against Country, and in the; 
souls of men, Victor over the evil spirit, always 
reigning as King, granting MIRACLES ON ALL SIEES. 

Yes, He is granting Miracles daily. . .to all who stop 
long enough to ask for the VICTORY WE ARE ALL SEEKING. 
No matter what, He is King and Ruler of all — He CAN 
AND WILL HELP IF WE ONLY STOP LONG ENOUGH TO ASK. . .

for which we ardently implore Thee 
Take from us a!! affliction and despair, 
all trials and misfortunes with which 
we are laden. For thy sacred infancy's 
sake hear our prayers and send us con- 
solation and aid, that we may praise 
Thee, with the Father and the Holy 
Ghost, forever and ever. Amen.

Dear 



r ■ Thank you for your letter of October 1, 1959, witii 

enclosures* Your most generous remarks regarding the FBI.and 
"Masters of Deceit" are indeed appreciated. 

^ I certainly can understand your concern over some 

typefe of motion pictures which by their very nature are degrading 
and offensive. As a parent you deserve to be complimented for 
supervising the movies which your children attend. I am enclosing 
some material relating to this subject which you may find of interest.

s 



: With respect to your inquiry about a publication 

dealing with the merits of movies, I desire to advise that the FBI 
dates not have a reference list of this type available; however, I zga 
certain that some religious groups do publish lists of motion pictia*es^> 
which they either approve or disapprove for adults and juvenile!! I 
alike, _-£ ^ 

If I may be of additional assistance, please do nfet* 
hesitate to call on me.

May I express my regard and admiration for the Bureau in its work against* NJ 
Communism in our Country* I follow your articles in the magazine of the American 
Liegion, and in newspapers, and praise the F.B.I* to ny children, Thqy will read 
^Masters of Deceit 1 * when they are old enough* 






My children and I saw "The i^rsterians" and the other movie "The Lost Missile" 
(on separate occasions) at the local movie house during the last month* We have 
| seen a good number of "space 11 movies over the last two years, but none of them 
\ have been just like these two* I have been so deeply disturbed that I must give 
\voice to my concern* 

"The Mvsterians" was. for weeks, siven auarter-page ads and radio publicity 
while it p;lay«d in New York City, The children looked forward with delight to the 
day they*d see it* Movies of this type appeal to a large segment of the adult 
population, as well as to the younger generation. Thousands may have seen it* 

Many parents do not accompany their children to the movies, and are therefore, 
if they are concerned at all, not aware that these " children* s movies" contain 
propaganda topics (indoctrination, almost) that are the antithesis of the intent 
of the pro-American heritage* Communist countries (even "outlaws") are presented 
as accepted* 

Beyond the pro-Communist propaganda, it pains me to realise that my children, 
and everyone else who saw these movies, saw our latest defenses presented in a 
light that left question (actually doubt, for they all failed) as to the effective 
hitting power of these defenses* Almost everything we could do, defensively, was 
just a farce* We attended these movies innocent of the fact that each was not 
simply a "Space Story," Surely they are much more than simply Space Stories? 

What protection is there for parents who care? Is there a publication that 
lists propaganda movies, to which citizens could subscribe in order to protect 
themselves and their youngsters from repetitious, insidious, anti~&nerican ^J^/fli 
brain-washing propaganda? REG- 23 / J ~ *• 10 H >• / / ~7 %*{

sterians" ToHo Production, released through M.G.M, Color, 
Japanese language film, English dubbed in. 

Story laid in Japan* Plot has to do with invaders (on Japanese soil) from 
interplanetary space. Invading force has just built such an impregnable fortifi- 
cation, Japanese officials call for help from rest of the world. Mid-picture 
scene shows large black limousine arriving in front of impressive building. Many 
cheering citizens crowd near. American flag is displayed at front right fender, 
American Amy officer leaves auto (face hidden as he faces toward rear of car), 
salutes, and quickly enters building. Another limousine draws to building, 
British flag at front fender. British officer in full dress salutes toward rear, 
and hurries into building. Next limousine has Soviet* flag at right fender. 
Russian officer in blue and white uniform salutes to rear, and enters building. 
Last limousine arrives. Flag at fender is half furled; it closely resembles 
Russian flag, and appears to have stars in left corner. Officer is of slight 
stature. He leaves auto, salutes toward rear, eniSers&the building. 

Another scene shows room laid out as small-scale U. N. General Assembly 
meeting room. Camera ranges across faces of many people there who, obviously, 
are from many parts of the world. All are in civilian dress. Viewers can read 
signs on desks of innermost circle: "United States," "United Kingdom, 1 * «U,S,S,R," 
U. N. flag prominently displayed behind speakers stand. 

In general, from this point on, as players seek solution to problem of get- 
ting rid of invaders, the thane is complete international cooperation and pooling 
of intelligence, efforts, men and equipment to conquer a common eneay, all under 
the guidance of United Nations, 

Pinal scenes (accompanied here by loud cheering of small fry audience at 
movie house), show several different interior shots of "new type aircraft" attacking 
Mysterians* building and aircraft. Here are seen Japanese military men sitting in 
their aircraft with civilians of "international appearance" while these aircraft 
engage in the attack. Signs on sides of these aircraft: "WORLD AIR FORCE," 

Questions about "The Mystaxians," 

Propaganda effect on children and adults of America (and of any other country 
where this picture migftt be shown) who see and hear: 

1) American, British and Soviet military men being equally cheered by 
admiring crowds (from what nation was the fourth military person?), as an 
obvious demonstration of United States - Communist Russian "Togetherness," 

2) U. N. taking over, controlling and solving a world problem after (the 
implication is that) individijal nations are helpless to meet and cope with an 
emergency situation. This idea could be extended (in minds of viewing public) 
into thoughts of lack of confidence in the most advanced of American defenses, 
and the need and desireability, therefore, of leaning upon and counting upon 
international protection. 

Recalling the tragic Korean "police action," and the terrible cost to 



(,) "W.V -/J/1 



' <^

! *Mysterians" Page Two 

the United States in: killed and wounded and missing persons; materiel; loss 
of prestige; and expensive contributions of all types to the rest of the U.N. 
members to conduct this action, I have no starry-eyed admiration for any type of 
"One World - United Nations 11 activity* I don*t want my children to see movies 
that advocate this* 

3) The only other flag that resembles the Soviet flag is the Chinese flag. 
Was the Chinese flag on the fender the Red Chinese flag? I could not see the 
blue bloc on this flag. It was only half unfurled. Surely the Nationalist 
Chinese have never participated in such a "high level" military discussion as 
would involve the United States, Great Britain (over, say, France or Germany.) 
Then, if this actually was the Communist Chinese Military Representative, why is 
he shown on equal footing with the U. S., Britain and Btussia? 

4) American machine guns, flame throwers, long Toms (cannons), Bulldog and 
M45 (tanks), and F~86, using its armament, were shown as useless against the 
space-earth unit, U.N. know-how, however, combined in a ONE-WORLD ACTION, pro- 
duced the machine that destroyed the space-earth buildings 

5) "WORLD AIR FORCE" signs on sides of victorious air craft (being wildly 
cheered as "winners" by movie audience children) is a brain-washing technique to- 
ward the idea of "One World" and the attendant subordination of the idea of the 
sovereignty and strength of the United States of America*

'"TheJ&ost Missile 11 released through United Artists. 

It ' 
The story is laid in America. Plot has to do with an unidentified, "lost" 
missile which is endlessly orbiting the world. It is held by earth's gravity 
so that it is five miles above the surface of the earth* It*s intensely hot 
exhaust gases render desolate all nature and man-made structures, apparently 
as completely as an atomic blast could destroy. Time is supremely important 
before American cities are laid waste by the speedy missile* American 
scientists and military men are called together to try to identify missile 
(from a radar photograph), but it is not recognizable as belonging to any country. 

Next, it is necessary to check with foreign governments as to whether any 
have knowledge of a t! lost missile" of their own. Flow of faces of many foreigh 
military men wordlessly wagging heads in negative reply. 

Scene is now the office of American Secretary of State, who talks to aide. 
Subject: checking off countries contacted before reporting results to the 
President of the United States. Words to effect: We have checked with London 
and Peiping, and missile is not theirs ("London" and "Peiping" specifically 
and clearly mentioned, ) Secretary of State then gives instruction that our 
Ambassador to Moscow quickly contact Russian officials for answer. Telephone 
rings. Aide first answers it, and gives instrument to S. of 3. The Secretary 
speaks with gre%t respect, then hangs up. Says to Aide, with relieved tone 
tinged with awe: "That was the Premier of the Soviet Union assuring us the 
missile is not theirs." 

Next sequences bring about destruction of lost missile by a last chance 
American atomic missile (after last-minute delay by teen-age delinquents) in 
head-on collision. 



Questions about "The Lost Missile." 

Propaganda effects *on children and adults of America (and of any other 
country where this picture might be shown) who see and hear: 

1) American Secretary of State casually refer to having directly contacted 
Peiping (seat of government of Consnunist China.) This is patent pro-Red China 
propaganda. 

2) Reference to a diredt good-will telephone call from Soviet Premier to 
U. S. Secretary of State (what is protocol on this?) again demonstrates idea of 
United States - Communist Russian "togetherness." 

3) Scenes show viewers failure of : U.S.D.E.W. (Distant Early Warning) setup, 
with their scrambled defense-attack planes using all their armament: F-89, F-86, 
F-100, F-102, and B-52, B-36, B-47 ... all useless against "lost missile." 

4) Movie also depicts self-centered uglyness (murder and near-rape by 
teen-age delinquents who almost prevent delivery of hydrogen activator to American 
atomic missile * . . national emergency, patriotism meant nothing to them*

Two years ago I went with a group for three weeks behind 
the Iron Curtain, and T$|t I saw over there certainly confirmed every 
thing you had to say i&^Masters of Deceit". 



I made a bunch of colored slides and I have shown them

I try to point out the menace of 6ommuunisou

book for Don EmiliOTfertiz (i^fievallos. 

Don Emiliois a retired Peruvian diplomat 
of great distinction. His family is descended from one 
or more of the Viceroys. At the present time his 
ancestral home is used as the Foreign Ministry ofjjeru^ 
His son Javier is President of the Chamber of Deputies 
(Speaker of the House) and Don Emilio is a personal 
friend of President Prado. 

In other words, Don Emilio is the type of 
person who should be armed with the proper facts and I 
am sure he would enjoy reading your book if he has not % 
already done so. 




Thank you.

of my book entitled "Masters of Deceit," and I truly appreciate your kind 
offer. In this connection, however, you will probably be interested in 
knowing that my book appeared in serial form in numerous newspapers 
throughout the country shortly after it was released by the publishers. 

Enclosed are publications relating to communism which 
you might like to read, as well as your enclosures which are probably 
of value to you* _

Hon, J, Edgar Hoover, 
9th and Penn. Ave*, 
Washington, D* C*, 

Dear Mr. Hoover: — 



O 



Last spring when I read from the library your MASTERS 
O F DEC EIffr-and then bought a copy of my own— I wisned 
that it could appear in the newrspapers of America to 
reach millions who do not read "books* 

Now, after the jovial little Premier* s visit when many 
thoughtless "persons may he thinking, "Oh, communism is 
not so had after all, " there seems to me a vital need 
for reducing this book to columns for everyone in these 
United States to read, 

National interest would be terrific, and any leanings 
toward this man and his creed would be off-set* 

Truly, I will consider it a patriotic privilege — if you 
lack the time— -to do this work for you, gratis and 
gladly* 

Just now I am free to stay in Washington long enough to 
condense your book to as many columns as seems necessary* 

To prove that I can grasp both content and spirit of a 
book in condensing, I enclose my 1957 Christmas Booklet 
and several Porum letters from the Macon Telegraph* Also, 
a note of encouragement he often writes from our nonage- 
narian druggist, world traveler, scholar and ex-mayor 
of many terms* 

Por introduction, I am a retired teacher making a close 
study of the Bible — as written, not as Modern Criticism, 
says it is written. And I know that you are an authority 
on the Book as well as on communism. £ J> _ //J l -f j / ~y J%

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

I have just finished reading what I believe to 
I be one of the^aost important books of our time — 
f your book, ! Mfasters of Deceit. * ! 

In view of the disclosures contained in your 
masterpiece, it is amazing to me ho>r ve Americans 
can continue to be taken in by the duplicity and 
claptrap propaganda spewed out by visiting 
CoTnnunist officials. Equally amazing is the abuse 
shown and the attacks made upon the persons, such 
as yourself, who have shewn the courage to spell 
out Communism as it really is* 




Several years ago, I had the Pleasure of read- 
ing TT The F.3.I. StEHDy", by Don whitehead. It seems 
difficult to trace the hi>rh standards and integrity 
of the F.3.I. of today to anyone else but yourself.

o 

Your very kind remarks concerning my book, "blasters 
,ja£ Daceit/^are most gratifying, and I am glad to Imow you found it 
interesflSigr In response to your inquiry, the communists use the 
term cooperatives most frequently in connection with agricultural 
production. They regard agricultural cooperatives as transitional sti^s 
in transforming agricultural production from small -scale individual 
farming to large collective farms. In those collective farms* v/hich hvq 
to be established by force, if necessary, private ownership is, lor ail 
practical purposes, completely abolished. This concept is, of course, 
eoivnplDteiy opposed to our uaderr-tandtn^ of cooperatives as groups ^.'li^h

Mr. J. Edgar Hoover 

Director - Federal Bureau of Investigation 

Washington, D. C. 

Dear Sir: x 

I am Beading your book, "Masters of Deceit. " It is a paper bound c 
Cardinal Giant. On page 40 there is a paragraph that disturbs me, one 
sentence in particular. It reads - 'Peasants were compelled to live in 
giant cooperatives. ' 

As you see by the paper I am using, I work for a cooperative and I believe ♦ 
that cooperatives have a place and serve a useful purpose in the American 
economy. 

I am just wondering if your use of the word 'cooperatives' means that you 
consider that Russian or Communist' Cooperatives are in any way connected 
with or are in the same 'League' with American Cooperatives. 

As I have understood from what I have been able to read about the subject, 
Communist 'Cooperatives* are not cooperatives as we understand them in 
the United States- Just as Communist 'Trade Unions' or Communist , 
'Democracy' are entirely different from the American ideas about these terms. 

I I think your book should be required reading for any thinking citizen. 

I know in a vaque way that Communism is antagonistic to the American way of 
life. I have read several books and articles about the subject by persons who have 
had direct contact with Communism, but I could never make myself come to a 
real understanding of how immediate the danger is. It seems almost fantastic 
to think that such things could be taking place here and now. Unitl I began reading 
your book, Communism, to me, was rather like the Spanish-Inquisition of 
the sixteenth century. Something far away in time and place. Instead, it is 
here-just outside the door, and in some cases already inside the room. 
Thank you for your book. Keep us informed. I suppose it must be discouraging 
sometimes to keep crying out-rDanger-when it seems so few listen. Or perhaps 
more people are listening-and thinking-and acting-than I know of.

"The Century" is noted as "An Undenominational Weekly" 
on its cover and is published weekly by the Christian Century

Page 1145 contained an article entitled "Is the NAACP 
Communist? North a«d south, some sober-minded people still 
believe that the Negro organisation is 'subversive.* Here are 
the facts for them," This article was written by ALFHED BASSE 
LEWIS. Pages 1146 and 1147 of this article reflect the following: f> 






« J. 3DGAH H00YES, the head of the FBI, certainly knows ) 
more about the communists than they know about themselves, for \ 
FBI agents act as members of the Communist party and report to v " 
him. He would certainly know if the N.A.A.C.P. is communist- \, 
dominated. In his recent book on the Communist party, "Masters 
of Deceit V he has a chapter on communists and the minorities in 
which he tells how the N.A.A.C.P. effectively countered the 
attempts of comsunists to infiltrate it. He* H00VSH writes 



iff* 



"The Communist Party has made vigorous efforts to 
try to infiltrate the NAACP. This organization in 1950 
authorized its Board of Directors to revoke the Charter 
of any chapter found to be Communist controlled ... The 
NAACP r s national leadership has vigorously denounced 
Communist attempts at infiltration. In 1956 when the 
NAACP and other organizations sponsored a National 
Conference on Civil Eights in Washington, the Party 
attempted to *move in,* and started promoting the 
Conference. The NAACP countered by screening the 
delegates. y(/ »

tried to exploit the Pilgriiaage as a rallying point 
for unity. NAACP leaders publicly told the Communists 
they were not welcome and steps wore tahen to hoop them 
off the platform. 

"Here is a further quotation from Sir. HOOVER f s booh: 

"One of the most effectivo anti-Communist measures 
X have heard of is the following: The NAACP had & 
faceting in Norfolk, Virginia, presided over by a 
clergyman . The minister opened the meeting with the 
simple statement that if any members of the Communist 
Party were present they would be excused. Silence 
ensued with no persons leaving. Then the chairman, 
starting with the front row, ashed oach individual if 
he was a Communist. All entered denials until be 
got to the bach of the room where the state organiser 
of the Communist Party was sitting with a white woman. 
TThcn ashed the question, ho stated he did not thinh it 
was a proper question to as!;. The minister calmly 
replied, *you are excused,* and the couple left. 

"On page 252 Mr, HOOVER gives an example of the conflict 
between the International Labor Defense (which was communist- 
comlnated) and the N.A.A.C.P. Ho says: »... according to tfMTE, 
the Communists charged the NAACP with* being in league with the 
lyncher-bosses of the South. ' 'WUTE* was WALTER \miTE, then 
executive secretary of the N.A.A.C.P."

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

I want to thank %qm very much indeed for 
the autographed copy of^'Masters of Deceit" which 
you sent to me. ^ ~~~ 

I have long encouraged my two teen age 
daughters to read everything under your signature

leftist writing. 

I am sen ding my Human Events copy to

a tiny bit of scandal in your past life. 



Thank you again for your book.

'Since Khrushchev Visit ...' 



Democrats Losing Confidence 
Of Voters in Handling Issues 



Gap Between Parties Harrows 
As Concern With Problems of 
Keeping Peace Mounts in Pott 

By GEORGE GALLUP 
Director. American Institute of Public Opinion 

pRINCETON, N: J., Oct. 15— With Nikita Khrushchev's visit 
putting the problem of keeping the peace uppermost in 
American minds, GOP hopes of profiting from recent "cold war" 
diplomacy are looking up.. 

Although the (Democrats still 
hold a slim edge over the Repub- # 

licans in terms of the public's con- 
fidence in their ability to handle 

the- nation's top problems, they » - .„ . 

have lost ground markedly in re- v? ** " 1 1 Q 1 "7 *~ * *| »»* ' "I 




cent months. 

1 Last spring, a 15-point margin 
separated the x Wo parties on this 
Gallup Poll party confidence 
barometer. Today, only a 2-point 
gap remains. 

This approach, which measures 
the national political implications 
of the problems that voters them- 
selves feel are the most pressing, 
has proved to be a reliable indica- 
tor of the political climate. 
After first being asked what 
they felt was the 
most important 
problem facing 
the country, all 
voters citing a 
problem were 
asked this ques- 
tion -by* Gallup 
Poll reporters: 

"Whkh political party do yOU 

thhuk can do a better job of 

handling the problem you have 

just mentioned — ihe Republican 

party or the Democratic party?" 

iSince May, there has been a 

sharp drop in the vote for the 

(Democrats which has been nearly 

balanced by *a rise in the number 

of voters-who see little difference 

between the two parties. The net 

effect is a much closer division 

between the two parties than was 

true in May, as the following 

shows: 

(PARTY HANDLE BEST? 

Today May 

Democrats 52% 61% 

Republicans 48 39 

Over-all, this has been the trend: 
Democrats' can ' • 

handle best 29% 41% 

Republicans can 

handle best 27 26 

No difference, 

No Opinion 44 33 

As was the case last spring— 
and, in fact, has been the case 
with few exceptions since the early 
days of the "cold waii' — the prob- 
lem of keeping international peace 
is the one uppermost in the minds 
of voters today. 



But as the following comparison 
shows, concern with finding a road 
to peace increased noticeably dur- 
ing a period- in which President 
Eisenhower embarked on a course 
of personal diplomacy and invited 
the Soviet leader to the TL S.: 
MOST IMPORTANT PROBLEM 
Today Feb., '53 
Keeping the peace 51% 44% 
High cost of living 13 . 15 
Union problems, 

strikes 5 1 

Integration 5 7 

Unemployment ... 3 10 

Others 15 17 

No Opinion . .' 8 6 

At the time of the 1956 presi- 
dential election, the" Republican 
party had a comfortable lead on 
the Party Confidence barometer. 
Among those who saw a difference 
between the two parties, the vote' 
— just before the Eisenhower- 
Nixon landslide — was 55 per cent 
for the -GOP, 45 per cent for the 
Democrats. 

In the 1952 election, with the 
Korean stalemate and the threat 
of war as the top issue in voters' 
minds, the Republicans had a 57 
•to 43 per cent advantage over the 
Democrats on this question. 

Just previous to the 1958 
Democratic Congressional land- 
slide, by way of contrast, the 
Democrats led the Republicans 
on the Party Confidence bar- 
ometer by a Wide margin.

International towmw&sm poses a great danger to 
fesecairlty of the world. Through deceitful and ruthless methods 
the ea$onents of this ideology nave subjected unwilling nations. 
While preaching equality for all, communism has created % brutal 
tyranny^ while promising freedom. It has brought enslavement. 

Never must we iorgei that teal Communist Parties 
are Megral parts of this internat^^ Communism 

must be fot^ht wherever It rears its ugly head* foigaorefbis 
Oreat is to risk faster. 

ft Is my sincere hope that "Masters of ^Deceit-* wiH 
be helpful to Japanese readers in recognisdliig the tactics employed 
by communism in promoting its nefarious alms. Only by informing 
ourselves can we hope to defeat this svil menace.

Dear Mr. Hoover: '"- 

t 
) 

Thank you for your letter of Oct. 13, 1959 and for \ 
the enclosures--your address and four reprints on \ 
communism — which I have scanned, later will study 
for "background of my own efforts. ■ 

I am pleased to learn that your book t _MA.S JE ERS OF 
DECEIT, has already appeared as a serial £n™^"ne°°news4- 
papers as a bulwark for our country against the 
pagan heresy. 

As our mastermind against encroaching communism, you 
may be intrigued by these first Forum letters I am 
enclosing, which you may keep if you wish. 

My neighbor, a retired minister and still a great 
reader at age 85, says, "I never noticed this Prin- 
ciple before, but it*s all there in the Bible just i 
as you say." J 

i 
And since it is there we may feel ourselves a part j 
of this 6000-year struggle between good and evil — J 
something tremendous in scope, universal in aspect, j 
eternal in time. I 

So while you are spearheading a great organization ; 
with far-flung forces across our land, I will continuje 
writing Forum letters — drops of water to wear away / 
stone. i 

Yours sincerely « [^_

SA TURDAY MORNING, OCT. 19, 1957 

Only God-Forces Can Halt 
The Anti-God Communists 

Editor, The Telegraph: We can learn from 
the Bible how to deal with Red Communism. 

During the first 2000 years, approximately, 
of Man's history, as told in chapters one 
through 11 of Genesis, the great RED dragon 
[that old serpent called the Devil and Sa- 
tan, Rev. 12:3, 9] seemed to be minding his 
own business. He caused the downfall of 

our first parents in the Garden of Eden; 
the wickedness preceding the -Flood; and 
the paganism with resulting confusion of 
tongues at Babel, later Babylon. 

Throughout the riext 2000 years or so— 
from Abraham to the birth of Jesus— he op- 
erated largely thrpugh the Edomites and 
kindred peoples. These, according to chap- 
ters 25 and 36 of Genesis, were descendants 
of Essau, surnamjed Edom: And Edom 
means RED. They troubled Israel from the 
Iron Curtain incident of Num. 2nri4-2i 
through Old Testament history— anti-God 
forces against God-Forces. 

Babylon, as of Ref. 17-". . . a woman ar- 
rayed in purple arid scarlet color" sitting 
upon a scarlet colored beast— joined the 
Edomites on a widening scale in persecuting 
the Chosen Feople until 586 B. C. when they 
conquered Jerusalem and carried away most 
of the Hebrews captive. 

Between the Testaments Rome overcame 
Palestine and drew it into her World Em- 
pire. RED was the jcoior of Imperial Rome, 
an anti-God force, j 

During the almost 2000 years of the Chris- * 
oan ^ra, Satan has. worked without ceasing 
through RED individuals, groups and na- 
tions to bring abouf: the downfall of God's 
Kingdom on earth, pi course, God and His 
Forces always win in the long run. 

But oh, that lonk run! We are living 
through one now, troubled by REDS as were 
all God's People before us. 

Today America is the leading Christian 
Nation of the worio;. Worthily or not, we 
stand for the Ten Commandments and the 
Golden Rule. Our ideologies are in a death-

For Our Nation To Survive, 
We Must Learn The Bible 

Editor, The Telegraph: Learn the Bible 
entire we must-as a nation-if we are to 
survive as a nation. Our very lifelines run 
far back into its sacred pages. 

In the news we read about the Isaac- 
Ishmael feud. Isaac was heir to the promises 
God made to his father Abraham. Ishmael 
was banished with his mother, a bondwoman. 
The legal son Isaac continued the Hebrew 
Nation; Ishmaelites became the Arabians of 
today: And the feud goes on-as in Genesis. 

Less well-known but quite as important 
and far more -widespread in its ramifications 
is the Jacob-Esau feud, persistent through 
the ages. 

We may read in Genesis 25 how these twins 
struggled together before birth that wise 
Rebekah "enquired of the Lord." 

God told Isaac's wife that she would be 
the mother of two nations- two manner of 
peoples; that one people would be stronger 
than the other; and that the younger would 
rule the elder. 

That young couple of about 1900 B. C. must 
have known what an explosive situation those 
circumstances would create in their family 

life: but only God could foresee that the 
the fires would be still smoldering--on an 
international scale-in the year 1957 A, D. 

For the elder twin who sold his birthright 
to hie brother Jacob was named Esau, sur- 
named Edom: And Edom means RED. 

That feud goes on also-as in the Bible- 
although the Edomites, Israel's enemies were 
last heard of as the four infamous Herods 
of the Gospels, a line of Idumean kings who 
held office in Palestine under Roman authori- 
ty. Idumea, the last remnant of Edom, dis- 
appeared from history after Jerusalem was 
destroyed in 70 A. D. 

But by that time the color RED seems to 
have become a symbol for the enemies &T 
God's People-both Babylon and the Roman 
Empire can be identified in the Bible by 
that color-and the symbol has held through 
the centuries until today. 

So we go back to God's Word for our 
lifelines, our hopes for survival over power- 
ful anti-God forces. 

First we must realize the significance of 
the oft-reDeated words in the Old Testament: 
"The battle is the Lord's." 

Then a glance down the long perspective

tied Used To Symbolize 
Opposition To God 9 s Force 

Editor, The Telegraph: In the Bible we 
find the color red used repeatedly as a sym- 
bolic expression for whatever opposes God 
and His forces. 

Orientals think in symbols more than do 
we of the West, and to a far greater extent 
employ them in their writings. 

Some passages in the Scriptures seem ob- 
scure because we are not familiar with the 
figures of speech, and, scholars do not 
agree on the meaning of their imagery. 

However, some Divine Truths are so of- 
ten expressed by the same figures that 
we cannot fail to see their meaning. The 
color red for opposition to God is one of 
these. 

The serpent of Gen. 3:1— unmistakably 
the red dragon of Rev. 12:3, 9— must head 
the list . . . Sin is often referred to as 
red: "Though your sins may be scarlet, 
they shall he as white as snow." Is. 1:18 
. . . War, we find in Rev. 6:4, is depicted 
as a red horse whose rider was given 
power to take peace from the earth. Nahum 
in Chapter 2 describes the conquest of Nin- 
eveh by the Babylonians and Medes in 
terms of that color: "The shield of his 
mighty men is made red, the valiant men 
are in scarlet." 

Yet by no means are all Biblical refer- 
ences to this color of adverse import. In 
all its different shades of scarlet, crimson 
— and even purple in ancient times— the 
color red was "used in dress and interior 
decoration. The decor of both the Taber- 
I nacle and the Temple included these 
shades. 

Signally, at the most important Event 
which ever occurred in all history, the Son 
of God glorified that color on the cross 
when his blood was shed for our salvation*

Dear Sir; 



I have intended for a long time to write and tell you 
that you have rendered an immeasurable and invaluable service and 
devotion in your many years of experience, work, and association in, 
for, and with the F. B. I. Unquestionably, you know this, but I feel 
that Americans should commend their great leaders - men, such as 
you - more often, that we should tell them how much we admire them 
and appreciate their unselfish dedication to our people, our nation, and 
our "American dream. " I am firmly convinced that what I am saying 
here - to you - is the exact feelings and thoughts of millions of Americans. 
So please consider, my words as coming from them as well as from me. 

I was very glad to read your superbly written book, 
"Masters of Deceit, " and consider it one of the most important books 
of our time. I have always done as much as I can to combat the evils 
of Communism but sometimes I feel that no matter how much I do, that 
it isn*t enough. I know so many people who are uninformed and extremely 
apathetic! I have given your book to many (as a gift) and loaned my copy 
to many. 

The only perplexing question I had in my liaind after reading 
your book - is on the subject of the NAACP. From many things I have 
read and studied - here and there - about this association, they have 
definitely and unquestionably been infiltrated by many Cpmmunists. I 
understand that, as you say in your book, that the NAACP has fought the 
vigorous efforts of the Communist Party to infiltrate it etc. - BUT 
nevertheless, my understanding is that they have infiltrated very 
successfully In Dan Smoots 1 Report dated 9-30-57 entitled "An American 
Tragedy" he names ten top leaders of the NAACP who have extensive 
Communist front records. This is one of many pieces of literature . 
that I have read, indicating that the NAACP (which, had a noble origin ) 
has become "tainted" by Communists infiltration. <In your book, on this, 
subject, I get the opposite impression; that the NAACP is "untainted. " 
Please enlighten me on this. I will appreciate it ve^y much. 

I am glad to have the opportunity of writing you. God 
bless you in your many hours Of work and effort for our Country and our 
people - many of whom take the F. B. I. for granted - on the surface - 
but down deep, who must surely feel as I do.

Mr* J* Edgar Hoover, Director 
Federal Bureau of Investigation 
Washington, D* C* 

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

CD 

I wanted to write to you to congratulate you on your fins I ?ff 
book "Masters of Deceit *» J l 

I would like to see the end of Communism and all it stands 
for because I feel that the individual was meant by God to be free 
and because I fimLy believe in the goodness and greatness of Almighty 
God* 

No Nation on earth can possibly fulfill a great destiny among 
men unless it respects the rights of the individual, unless it guarantees 
him the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness* Our Nation 
was bom on freedom and nursed by great men who believed in God and the f / 
fellowship of men* Americans have never elected a Dictator I y 

A 

To grant any man or group of men total power over other men no p*, 
matter what the emergency is 5 is to court disaster* History reveals that 
no man has ever been born capable of using total power wisely! Our present 
Government with it ! s checks and balances, with it's right to vote, to change 
Governments through free election s is to me the only wise course for nations 
to follow© 

I hope that America will forever be free. That it will not sacrafice 
freedom for peace and security* I hope that we will forever fight and seek 
freedom for others whoever they are, no matter where they may be* I pray 
God will endow us with unflinching leadership? with men of dedication and 
daring courage like you$ that will speak out and be heard in the cause of 
Freedom* God HLess You*

However, one thing worries me and that is on page P. 257 you 
mention that such Jewish organizations as Efnai Btrith, American Jewish 
Committee, American Jewish League Against Communism, and The 
Anti -Defamation League are all opposed to communism. However, Tve 
always heard that of these groups, at least the B'nai B'rith and the 
Anti-Defamation League are pro-communist. Would you please set me 
straight on this ? 

Thank you for your help.

I have just finished reading your book 
Masters of Deceit. It was the most 
interesting book on Communism 
that I have ever read since it showed, 
in reality how the Communists work. 



Although I am only 16 this book really made me stop and 
think about the future of our country. Maybe if others 
my agei read your book it would make them realize the 
serious state our country is really in. I attend Sacred 
Heart Academy in Hempstead, New York and I believe 
many of the other girls in my school would also become 
very interested in your department of our government 
as I have if they also read your book. 

Mr£ Hoover, I think you are doing a great job in trying 
to' prevent Communism from spreading in America. 
Maybe if more of our government officials took such an 
interest in their work as you do Communism would 
[ practically be eliminated from our country. 

I hope God will always bless your workjand that,4t wilL 
always be a great success in the history-of our'cciuntry.

Dear Mr. Hoover, 

Thank you so very much for your

Masters of Deceit. It has helped 
immeasurably to bring me to a 
iull awareness of my responsibility 
to my country and my God. 



Knowing that only an ideology can understand - and 
if necessary fight - an ideology; I must dedicate 
myself to a superior one. 

t More than anything else, I want to make my home r / 
my classroom and my community launching platforms 
for an inspired democracy, -Your book makes ine more 
determined than ever. "

Mr. J. Edgar Hoover, Director 
Federal Bureau of Investigation 
Washington, D.C. 

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

Several months ago I was asked to be Chairman of a group to study 
your booky ^Masters of Deceit" , and to report on it at a regular 
meeting of -Bhe Catholic WtSx^s Apostolate of Aurora. After reading 
the hook I happened to see in a copy of the local National Secretaries 
Bulletin that the Quaker Oats Company were offering a script, based 
on your book, for presentation at women* s groups. I immediately 
requested the script, and finding it much better than we, personally, 
could have done, we presented it at the October meeting of our group. 

I thought you might like to know that the members were very much 
impressed with your book and, have pledged themselves to do everything 
in their power tp fight communism. Several of the members requested 
the script to be used in other groups to -which they belong and we felt 
that perhaps we had awakened a few, at least, to the dangers that you 
brought out so forcibly. 

Thank you for what you have done and are doing in this fight. I am 
sure that God will bless your efforts. We will do our best to use the 
one tool we have that the Russians do not have - and -which you brought 
out so forcibly - Religion - to fight with you.

I was amazed and shocked that our H J.' Ho J] omn 

own people should become a part of Jj|" ;'°^ $ 
such a diabolical scheme, perpertrated by the 
Russians. 

jYour department must be doing a real fine job, keeping 
them in check, but after reading your book I would 
feel better if we had 62,000 F.B.I, agents rather 
than only 6200. This seems a small Number to cope 
with such a deadly threat. 

V 

I have in mind to write the Editor of our paper and see if 
He couldn't publish your book in daily installments. I 
feel it is imparative that all Americans, and the whole 
world for that matter should read it. So they won't 
be taken in, by such, deceitful, lying tatics.

Having Just finished rereading your valuable ^^sters^of Decei 
find there are still one or two points that seem to me ffoHae&T 
fication. 

First, Section 8 of Part 3 (Why Do people Become Communists?) seems 
to me rather inadequate in spite of the fact that it is very compre- 
hensive. Let me put it this way (I may fumble a little, but I desire 
to be very clear). As a general rule a person acts only according to 
his own advantage, fancied or actual. What George Washington said about 
nations being trusted only when their advantage was in plain sight 
applies equally to individuals. In my own book communists can be divi- 
ded into two classes, Damned Crooks and Damned Fools, the first number- 
ing all officials of the party and the second everyone else* Now this 
second class is astonishingly large and, to my mind, astonishingly 
impersonal. Take ouf classic "life, liberty and the pursuit of happi- 
ness": with the communist, his life is held precariously; he has np 
liberty and his pursuit of happiness is highly dubious. There mu^tl be 
something more; and while I cannot put this "something more" in exa£>t 
terms I can roughly define it by saying that it partakes of a ps^ido 
religious nature. In fact, it is rather like the Crusades, thos#^ass 
movements which were engendered by Jackasses and ctarried out by a mix- 
ture of hysterics and thugs for a very dubious end. It doesn f t $eemj 
to me that anything as hair-brained as? communism could attract the 
followers it has in any other way or on any other terms. (The repudi^ 
tion by communism of religion seems to indicate that they too realizf 
the truth of this*). Communism is the universal substitute not only 
for common sense but for the hardly acquired knowledge of the ages v 

Further, I wonder if we are not making u a ^mistake in thinking we are v 
fight ly communism at all. If the Russians want to paint themselves 
_red and walk about on thefer hands what do I care?, t just so long as 
they confine their vargaries to their own country! It really doesn[?J£! 
matter to me what goes on in Russia just so long as they don ! t try t^r; 
: import it; and, moreover, import it by forcible means. What we are ^\\ 
'actually fighting is the same old imperialism that has raised unlimirr »* 
ted hell with civilization since the dawn of recorded history. SpeakMJ 
ing for myself y I am + vigorously against all imperialism, against all t/& 
proselytzing of any kinder even of democracy - I have ,a T imapJ^fi^^^pi nfe-h 
foreign missions - because' it seems to me that it always, in the long 
run, leads to 'trouble. , If a people or a person needS|^q^t^Sn@5^ou 
have, give .it to them b^&ll means, if you can spare it!, bufe 




never force it on them, even though you feel it may b^nnfinrg: 
good. In the present instance we are fighting something tha* 

I is bad - so much the stronger may it make us! - but good 
fight is there just the same. Communism is probably only 
the pan; at most it is a bad excuse for the imperialism 
our curse for centuries. Now we must fight both. 

Thank you for listening!

Dear 



Your letter o£ November 9, 1959, has been received, 
and I very much appreciate the fact that you are planning to use my 
boo!;, "Masters ol Deceit, " in an American government course. 

While I would like to be able to aid you, I regret 
that this Bureau has no iilm available on communism. I am, 
however, enclosing material concerning this subject which I hope 
will be oi' interest to you. You are certainly to be commended ior 
your forthright action in teaching your pupils the dangers oi 
communism. I feel that when our young people learn the true 
nature oi this atheistic conspiracy they will realise that it is an 
evil, determined to destroy our way of lixe. 

Sincerely yours,

Mr. Holloman 

Miss Gandy 



I am writing to you on Veterans' Day in regards to the book thaT 
you have written entitled, "Masters of Deceit. " I am a veteran of World 
War I and fought to help preserve Democracy in the United States. Every 

I generation will have the same problem to face - the problem of preserving 

*our liberties and our way of life. 

I am now a teacher in the above School and teach a class in American 

I Government. A y>ear or two ago I read the FBI Story by Don Whitehead which 
I thought was excellent and I ask for special reports on this book by some of 
my students. I just got through reading your book "Masters of Deceit, " and 
I honestly believe that every boy before he graduates from high school should 
know the inside story of communism and the danger we face. More now 
than ever since Khrushchev's visit, because many people now have the idea 
that co-existence is possible. 

I imagine that many people have written to you in appreciation of 
this warning that you have given to us and I know that every reader of your 
book will heed this warning. 

Sincerely yours,

It is very reassuring to know that your teacher, 



reads "Masters of Deceit" to the class to help you 

understand the menace of communism and how you can help to 
combat it. In response to your request, I am enclosing some 
material dealing with this subject. 



When I was in the sixth grade, 1 was intensely 
interested in the history of our country and the individual 
contributions of many of our forefathers. 3h addition, I partici| 
in competitive sports for they have been the training grounds f c 
many of our leaders, past and present. ;

Dear Mr. Hoover: 



o 



I have just completed reading again your book entitled ^sters 
ofDgi5jgJi; T # I am very much concerned about the communistic condition in 
the United States and throughout- the world. 

The reason for siting this letter is twofold. First of all, to 
let you know how much I appreciate the work that you and your agents are 
doing along this line in the United States. Secondly, I have; been asked 
to make a speech about communism in the United States at my church, and I 
was wondering if you could give me any late information that I might use 
in preparing for this speech. 

Your book was first call ed to my attention and recommended to me 

by your agent in >&rion, Arkansas,] [for whom I have the 

highest personal regards , and think OA IS a line gentlemen and an outstand- 
ing agent. 

Any help or -information you can give me along these lines will 
be greatly appreciated.
